Making a will
Your will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. For more information visit Making a will on the governments’ website.
You can write your will yourself, but you should get legal advice, for example from Citizens Advice, to make sure your will is interpreted in the way you wanted.
You need to get the will formally witnessed and signed to make it legally valid.
If you want to update your will, you need to make an official alteration (called a ‘codicil’) or make a new will.
